It was a very fun family outing. There were so many people! While others run, bike, skate or roller-blade around the course, we'd decided to walk. It is good to see everyone joining hands in raising cancer awareness in Malaysia. My neck was still stiff from the surgery and it was a bit difficult to stretch during the warm-up session, but I will not let it dampen my spirit and deter me from completing the course!
Terry Fox was 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer. His right leg was amputated above the knee, yet he managed to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He called his journey the “Marathon of Hope”. Terry Fox died at the age of 21 but before he died, he knew that a fund-raising event would be held each year, with the same objectives as the “Marathon of Hope” – to help find a cure for cancer.
“Even though I’m not running anymore, we still have to try to find a cure for cancer. Other people should go ahead and try to do their own thing now” – Terry Fox.
I will definitely join the run again next year! Join me?
